Wolverhampton Grammar School have backed the club with their own good luck message by illuminating the school grounds in old gold.

The words to 'Nuno had a dream' have echoed through the school's corridors over recent weeks, as excitement in the city ramps up.

Carrie Bennett, spokeswoman for Wolverhampton Grammar School, said: “With Wolves set for their first FA Cup semi-final appearance in 21 years on Sunday, the School wanted to create its own tribute to the success of the team – and to wish them well.”

Founded in 1512, the school is one of the longest standing institutions in the city and bosses have now backed Nuno's side to create history at Wembley.

More than 34,000 fans in old gold and black are travelling to the capital on Sunday to see the club play in their first semi-final since 1998.

It's also the biggest contingent of travelling Wolves fans since the 2003 play-off final, where 33,500 made the trip to Cardiff.

If Wolves were to make it to the final, it would be their first since 1960, when the club last lifted the trophy.
